Logix5000 Programming

We are proud to offer this two-day course that provides students with a basic understanding of RSLogix5000 ladder logic instructions and terminology. Nelson’s PLC/EOI Specialists Carmen Pillizzi and Don Goldbach will instruct and provide the students hands-on practice to efficiently program a Logix5000 controller while using the RSLogix5000 programming software. Students will gain a better understanding of Tasks, Programs, and Routines function as well as creating Tags. There will also be labs using Local and Distributed I/O over Ethernet demonstrating the advantages of the Producer/ Consumer model and enhanced module capabilities. Additional labs include Processor to Processor communications, User Defined Data Types, and Add On Instructions.  We also cover the basics of Ethernet I.P. addressing and 'Flashing' of the Logix hardware.

The individuals who have had little or no working experience with Logix5000 systems, but do have ladder programming experience, should attend this course. Tuition includes manuals and handouts to give each student the opportunity to become a Logix5000 programmer.
